The legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lives on in the 42nd Annual “Original” MLK, Jr. Birthday Parade and Taste of Houston Festival. The Houston Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade Foundation, Inc. and the Black Heritage Society will ring in the new year with the only Houston parade officially licensed by the King Center of Atlanta, GA. Both events are FREE to the public.

The Parade starts at the corner of Smith & McKinney located in front of Houston’s City Hall and Hermann Square Park (900 Smith, Houston 77002). This is also the location of the
4th Annual Taste of Houston Festival. Come celebrate the 42nd Anniversary of Houston’s and the nation’s first MLK, Jr. birthday parade celebration.

The Parade begins promptly at 10:00 AM. This FREE family-friendly festival will feature popular and cultural food cuisines along with arts, crafts and community-based vendors. You will also find kid-friendly activities and live musical performances on stage.
